All-time Super Bowl battles

Tom Brady

The Patriots and Giants are involved in some of the better Super Bowls
of all-time.  Majority of greatest matchups on the big stage have
occurred in past decade.  It will take a lot for Sunday’s game to match
Giants-Pats Part I.

10. SUPER BOWL XXIII

San Fran 20, Cincinnati 16
Joe Montana, orchestrated a 92-yard drive in 11 plays with his late TD strike to John Taylor proving to be the difference.

9. SUPER BOWL XLIV

New Orleans 31, Indy 17
The  Saints shocked the Colts with an onside kick to start the second half and Tracy Porter’s interception clinched it for New Orleans.

8. SUPER BOWL XIII

Pittsburgh 35, Dallas 31
The Cowboys’ Jackie Smith dropped a sure touchdown in the third quarter as Dallas’ comeback attempt fell short against the Steel Curtain.

7. SUPER BOWL III

NY Jets 16, Baltimore 7
In perhaps the most meaningful Super Bowl of all-time, Joe Namath’s “guarantee” came to fruition as the AFL was forever legitimized.

6. SUPER BOWL XXXVIII

New England 32, Carolina 29
Janet Jackson’s halftime “slip,” set the tone for a thrilling second half between the Patriots and Panthers. Tom Brady set a Super Bowl record for most pass completions with 32.

5. SUPER BOWL XXV

NY Giants 20, Buffalo 19

Ottis Anderson was the standout performer for the Giants but this game is best remembered for the “wide right” miss with eight seconds left by Buffalo kicker Scott Norwood.

4. SUPER BOWL XXXIV

St. Louis 23, Tennessee 16
Tennessee nearly erased a 16-0 deficit but St. Louis’ Mike Jones tackled receiver Kevin Dyson at the 1-yard line as time expired in the most remarkable final play in Super Bowl history.

Rams QB Kurt Warner became a folk hero as he passed for 414 yards and two touchdowns to win game MVP.

3. SUPER BOWL XXXVI

New England 20, St. Louis 17
The Patriots were 14-point underdogs against the “Greatest Show on Turf,” but a brilliant game plan against Marshall Faulk and the budding brilliance of Tom Brady proved too great for the Rams. Adam Vinatieri’s 48-yard field goal sparked the Pats dynasty as time expired in New Orleans.

2. SUPER BOWL XLIII

Pittsburgh 27, Arizona 23
Steelers linebacker James Harrison accounted for what is arguably the most exciting play in Super Bowl history as he picked off Arizona quarterback Kurt Warner and returned it a record 100 yards for a touchdown right before halftime to give the Steelers a 17-7 lead.

Warner provided big plays of his own, however, as he hit Larry Fitzgerald on a post pattern for a riveting 64-yard touchdown which gave Arizona a 23-20 lead with 2:37 remaining.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger would not be denied, however, as he found Santonio Holmes in the back corner of the end zone.

1. SUPER?BOWL XLII

Giants 17, New England, 14
The storyline heading into this game will forever be difficult to beat. It featured an undefeated Patriots team that was an NFL record 16-0 in the 2007 regular season against the No. 6-seeded Giants. Throw in the whole New York-Boston thing and you had a mountain of hype leading up to the game. Then they played … and the game surpassed the wildest of expectations. David Tyree’s helmet catch, arguably the most famous play in Super Bowl history, led to Eli Manning’s touchdown pass to Plaxico Burress in the corner of the end zone. Tom Brady, Randy Moss and the vaunted Patriots offense ran out of time in Arizona and New York hoisted its third Lombardi Trophy in franchise history.
